A little owed to OST's nids. Its a 5th edition warrior, not a 4th ed. one.
The Lion Shoulders are from Scibor. In Soul Hunter the terminators have the lions on their shoulder as tribute to the top predator of Nostramo.
My own guardsmen as a trophy here as well as a genestealer from OST's Hive.
The storm shields are made from the gun covers from the Defiler reaper auto cannon. The hammers are the normal mauls that come with the terminators except with a new hammer top that I made from plasticard.
Normally I go with the electric blue color for power weapons but since their armor is mostly blue it wouldn't stand out as much. It needed to stay dark as per the theme of night lords so I went with a deep purple and only white at the very very tips.
OST and I were making fun of the little coin purse's that they all have and I remembered reading that someone on the internet said he liked to think of them as castration trophies...so I went with that. Its better than saying its my little sack of chaos trinkets.
Since this is a counts as army, I feel I owe it to my opponent to remind them as often as possible. I'm going heavy on the dead blood angels as an effort to do that.
The blood was done with a 4:2:2 mix of Blood Red, Scorched Brown and black. Mixed with a little bit of Still Water and high gloss varnish. I was so happy with the look I smeared it on my hands and showed my wife to freak her out. It worked exactly as I thought it would.
I really like the chaos terminators over the space marine ones. They're bigger and bulkier making me think of terminators dwarfing the regular Astartes. They sadly have kind of static poses but are easy enough to work with to give more variance than the box has standard.
Finally, here are some shots with the flash just to show the blood. The flash makes the models look very bright compared to what they normally are. A photo station is next on my list of to-do as well as an upgrade to the current camera.
